The Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW water-cooled modular ice machine produces up to 523 LB of full sized cube ice every 24 hours. The cabinet of the ICE0406FW has an Ultra low profile at 20" high. The cuber head exterior combines a stainless steel front panel with fingerprint-proof plastic side panels for durability and aesthetics. Furthermore, the functional design of the Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW saves wall space, at just over 30" wide. The water-cooled unit does not require clearance on the right side or back for air intake and exhaust vents, since the water-cooled condenser does not require cooling fans. Therefore, you can install the ICE0406FW in narrow spaces.
The ice that the Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW produces is the Full Cube. The larger cube (7/8" x 7/8" x 7/8") takes a while to melt, making it ideal for "on-the-rocks" drinks. Full cube ice keeps beverages colder while taking longer to melt, meaning less dilution of the beverage.
Note that for installation, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW requires a 208-230 volt, 60Hz, 1-phase electrical connection. The water-cooled cuber head also needs 2 incoming water lines (a potable water line and second line for cooling the condenser). The ICE0406FW requires an external drain for both the run off from ice making AND from cooling the condenser. The ICE0406FW is a modular cuber head and so it must be mounted on another piece of equipment for storage of ice, such as an ice storage bin, a beverage dispenser, or an ice dispenser. The Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW uses only 28.9 gallons of water for every 100 LB of ice it produces. However the water-cooled condenser requires a large volume of water (132 additional gallons for every 100 LB of ice produced) and this waste-water is all drained out of the unit. However, since the water-cooled model does not require electricity for cooling fans, there is some reduction in electrical consumption. Ice-O-Matic has also incorporated its Harvest-Assist technology to help dislodge ice from the evaporator more quickly, so the ice-making cycle is shorter, saving additional electricity. While there is a lot more water wasted with a water-cooled ice machine, there is savings on electricity.
The possibility of growth of bacteria, slime, and fungus on internal surfaces where water and ice touch is reduced due to Ice-O-Matic's built-in AgIon antimicrobial compound. With regular cleaning and a water filtration system on the incoming water lines, the Ice-O-Matic ICE0406FW will produce Pure Ice for your business for years.
